The Kampa Watergate 8 is a traditional style 8-berth tunnel tent with a vis-à-vis bedroom arrangement (i.e. the bedrooms face each other) across a large central living area. The vis-a-vis are particularly popular for those who want a bit of separation (not to say privacy) from their camping companions, family members, mother-in-law, etc.
The tent features a fully sewn-in groundsheet throughout so preventing drafts, bugs and the exceptionally high water table on the Somerset Levels entering the tent. Kampa has not skimped on the size of the windows in the living area which help make the interior feel light and airy. There’s also plenty of headroom at 205cm in height.
Access in and out of the tent comes from the two large side doors, one of which has a protective rain canopy overhead to protect the doorway in inclement weather. In addition, both have secondary mesh doors to keep any flying bugs at bay on hot days when you still want plenty of ventilation.
To help accommodate 8 people there's a 4-berth inner which has a divider curtain to form a 2+2 arrangement. At the other end of the tent there are two separate 2-Berth inners. As the tent has a fully sewn-in groundsheet, any of these inners can be removed if desired, to create more living space. The inners also have a useful organiser pockets in the front wall –handy for all your bits and bobs.
